6:20 pm
>> how it continues in the mountains, 10:00 at night. one last push as accumulating snow showers move down and even to the norfolk area as we were showing you by early sunday morning and then it's out of here and it's blustery, very cold. late tomorrow afternoon, through the overnight hours and during the day on sunday. so, snow is going to be out there. here's what we're thinking in terms of potential tonight through saturday. this is like until 7:00 tomorrow morning. so, we're talking very light amounts, up to one inch for most areas. with phase two, during the day tomorrow, look at how this area starts to grow and it continues just on down to our south where we start picking up maybe up to one inch of snow and in this area, potentially one to three big jackpot totals out in the mountains as well. i mentioned we would show you specifically which city, according to our model projection, this is a computer generated product. let me take you out tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. this is what we have on the ground. find your city, are you in gaithersburg?
6:21 pm
maybe a half an inch. .2 of an inch for baltimore. this is a projection. a .1 for d.c. and not much for everyone else by seven tomorrow morning and then, we go to phase two and through the rest of the day, we pick up more. leonardtown, could you -- could you add an inch of snow? that is what our computer is suggesting, .8 of an inch in salisbury and we add to the totals of dulles and baltimore, dulles and gaithersburg and baltimore, maybe two to three- inch totals and this is not a huge snowstorm for sure. what it's going to do is bring in the arctic chill and the winds, windchills will be probably the bigger part of the story. the 20s and 30s for highs, low to mid-30s for us on sunday. with a pretty incredible windchill in the types and maybe single digits to the west. i wouldn't be surprised if a wind advisory goes into effect tomorrow night. the temperature drops to 23 degrees and that is feeling very cold and that is a combination of rain and snow showers, especially north and west and on sunday, 36.
6:22 pm
